Petproof by Toptextil
Does Toptextil offer fabrics that are resistant to dogs and cats? Yes! We’ve tested our fabrics, and now we have irrefutable evidence of that. If you have pets, you have to face having scratches and hairs on your furniture. We love animals, that’s why we have fabrics that can handle these challenges better than any other. PETPROOF is a new solution designed to make life easier for pet owners.
What is PETPROOF?
Toptextil fabrics bearing the PETPROOF mark show increased resistance to scratches and thread snags from animal claws.
PETPROOF fabrics have a fine weave and a smooth surface, therefore the hair does not penetrate the fabric and is easy to remove with a textile roller or damp cloth.

How do we test them?
PETPROOF fabrics are certified according to the PN-79/P-04664 standard issued by the Textile Institute. How does the scratch resistance test look like and does the institute employ dogs and cats for this purpose? Of course not, but the process of testing by animals would probably be very interesting
But let’s get back to business. Scratch resistance testing consists in placing the tested fabric on a roller and subjecting it to the action of metal spheres with spikes. The spheres, by bouncing off a rotating roller, imitate the action of animal claws. The test result is given in a 5-degree scale, where 1 means numerous snags, and 5 means no snags. A score of 3 or more means resistance sufficient for pet animals.
